Pledge for 30

Pledge for 30 is about helping you to commit to a small, healthy behaviour change for 30 days, with the hope that after the 30 days this has become a normal part of your everyday life.

We’ve put together a pledge pack which includes a pledge declaration, a progress calendar, and some advice about how to pick your pledge and how to maximise your chances of success.

Ditch Your Desk

Ditch Your Desk is all about taking a break to move more and explore everyday, whether that’s campus, the city of York, your garden or your local area.

To help you with this we have provided a range of maps and guides for York and the surrounding area, Leeds, East Riding and North Yorkshire, available through the link below.

5x5 a day

5x5 a day aims to help you integrate some additional physical activity in to your day in manageable blocks of 5 repetitions, 5 times a day.

We have created a weekly list of 5x5 a day exercises, a weekly checklist so you can tick off each time you complete a set of 5 and information on each exercise.
